The whole fucking thing stinks. What a way to run one of the biggest clubs in the world. No plan, no idea, no system.
Woodward is a useless prick when it comes to football transfers. He should stick to selling the soul of the club to any corporate entity that'll show him their knickers.
And Jose is hardly making it a happy club for any potential prospect to join is he?
I'm already fed up with this season and it hasn't started yet.

It may be that the board have seen so much money wasted that they are not prepared to give Mourinho any more which,of course,means his days are numbered.Why let him spend when there will be somebody new coming in very soon.

Woodward's had three coaches and spent nearly £800m on players. A league cup, an fa cup and the europa is all we've won in his 5 years. Who's wasting the money?

Moyes,Van Gaal and Mourinho to name but three. The money wasted in the last few years has been spectacular. I assume Woodward only validates the transfers after the manager makes the decisions of who to buy.The greatest folly has been the appointment of three managers who have not been up to the job and missing out on those that could have. And it's nearer a billion pounds if you take into account wages etc. And like you say Marlon the return for the outlay has been pathetic.

The players aren't the problem.

The players are ALSO the problem laz.
DDG, Valencia, Young, Matic, Fellaini and Lukaku are playing to the best of their abilities and have been consistent over the years. You may not rate some of their abilities but are any of them underachieving? Most of the others are also accountable, not just the manager.

We've got a good enough squad to win a major trophy but the managers have been the wrong appointments. They made 3 errors. The type of manager they chose was wrong for United. Alright Fergie is heavily responsible for Moyes but the board should have stepped in and overruled him. In hindsight it was a crazy decision. We should have nabbed Pep, Klopp or Poch. Done whatever it took like when we signed Cantona and Rooney. If we'd have got one of them at any point during the last 5 years we'd have at least one major trophy by now with this squad, last years squad - even Moyes / Gaal's squad because although it wasn't as good as the one we have now the league was a lot poorer back then.

Also worth bearing in mind that the transfer fees haven't necessarily been wasted commercially as the club has just got richer and richer in those last 5 years

I'll give you DDG but all the others have had better seasons than they've had under Jose. I bet man for man our players do better under Zidane, Klopp, Pep or Poch, any more attacking manager.

Not one player has arrived and played better than they did elsewhere, it's Jose's fault.
